China Digitally Handcuffs People Planning a Protest


A protest planned in Henan by hundreds of bank depositors in central China seeking access to their frozen funds has been thwarted because the authorities have turned their health code apps red, several depositors told Reuters.

Human Rights activists warned it would be used to control people, but there isn’t much the people can do about it.
